Comedian Chris Tucker has announced he will launch an 18-date national standup comedy tour, produced by Live Nation.
The tour kicks off on August 19th in Long Beach, California and winds down November 26th in Oakland, California at the Paramount Theater. Chris Tucker rose to fame as a stand-up comedian on Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam. He went on to star as “Smokey” in 1995’s classic movie “Friday.”
Since then, Chris Tucker has become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors starring in comedies like “Rush Hour,” “Rush Hour 2” and “Rush Hour 3” with Jackie Chan.
He has also starred in hit movies like “Dead Presidents,” “Money Talks” “Jackie Brown” and others.
According to “Friday’s” director, Ice Cube, he is willing to produce a another installment of the series, but only if Chris Tucker reprises his role as “Smokey.”
“That’s my dream. I hope so, I even want Chris Tucker in it,” Ice Cube said. “I think that’s what everybody wants to see. They want to see all of us together, I’ve been campaigning trying to put that together, I’m going to keep campaigning until the idea is so old nobody wants to see it.”
